PACE 4—NAUGATPCK NEWS (CONN.). TUESDAYY, NOV. 1, Brerjr nfrmlog tCxoept Sunday) by NAUGATUCK NEWS CORP. NAUGATUCK, CONN. KM and «• „ AD Department* Kntered aa »»cond claaa matter at the po«t offle* to Naugatuck. Conn. SUBSCRIPTION RATES Payabl* In Advance I Month ...n.80 l~g«*T . ...t If amber: American New»pap«r Pub. N. E. Dany Newspaper Pub. 5 M«-. PM >«r TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 1949 Charge Refuted Naugatuck has in turn cheered and been cheered at the vigor with which the Police Department refuted published but inaccurate reports that the Community Ambulance tarried unnecessarily in responding to an emergency call. Some, perhaps those who are unfamiliar with the record of the Community Ambulance, were temporarily disturbed by the report, until apprised of its rash inaccuracy. But their reaction was mild in comparison to the eruptions of those who read the report and knew without further enlightenment that it was false. Ours is not the purpose to defend the every action of a public service department, just for the sake of keeping peace in the ranks and perhaps at the expense of proper deportment. Nor is it our policy to criticize each and every minor mistake or misdemeanor. Praise for the good and criticism of the evil and the unqualified in public office is a straightforward policy deserving the effort of attainment And the service record of the Naugatuck Community Ambulance, operated by the Police Department, is one that has won community commendation from 1936 when the first vehicle was purchased through public subscription. The present ambulance is the third purchased with the r.upport of those who place implicit confidence in its dependability in time of emergency. It would take much more than a:i unfounded rumor, regardless c£ prominence accorded in out- oMown newspapers to shake that confidence. In this case, a report that a badly injured woman lay in agony for 25 minutes in the ?.-reet awaiting arrival of the am- bilance, has been proved absurd and irrational. The elapsed time between the call and the arrival ac the scene of the accident was actually six minutes.. .and that's t ip speed for a department lack- i.ig a radio communications system. Defense Outlay Appropriations for the, national defense total more than $17,000,000,000, including the large sum to finance European armament •.vhich is part of the program. An effort was made to hold the defense outlay below $15,000,000,000, but restraints against heavier spending began break ins when President Truman routed the economy forces by tossing in the Russian atom bomb. If the international situation remains menacing or grows worse, this country's defense expenditures will reach heights still more astronomical. It is contended the Russian allocation of funds for military affairs is. the equivalent of $30,000,000,000, although this must of necessity be mainly a guess. When diplomats get busy and arrange a really stable peace, the human family can get out from under its monstrous military load. And the snag to this eventuation is that no nation can do business •with Russia except at grave risk to its sovereignty. Spending for defense makes more sense than some of the other costly, wasteful programs in which the administration is indulging and which it proposes. Dam building, etcetera, would be suspended anyway in case of war. So the United States goes ahead arming Europe, building toward a big air force, maintaining and expanding infantry forces, adding to atom bomb plants, pouring millions into experimentation, all on the theory of an inevitable conflict. What To Bead Despite competition of radio and video, it appears that people are buying more books than ever before. This is somehow surprising despite the great popularity of the book clubs. It is naturally to be expected that wallets will be loosened for the purchase of books for Christmas gifts, of which there is worthy profusion. But people are buying moore books for their own libraries, picking and choosing for a fall and winter orgy of reading. Taken as a whole, this is undoubtedly a good sign. Whatar^ people reading? There is the usual assortment of trash. One of his stenographers writes her impressions of Roosevelt, not objectively. Tomes beating the drum of social equality are a dime a dozen. Lapse of timejias afforded op- portunities for the writing of memoirs—with able assistance— by officers in the armed services who played an important part in World War II, Some of these are interesting and make a contribution to written history. Men who have been important literary figures of the past do not lack for new biographers. In fact, a distinct trend is visible in this direction. In the field of fiction the printing presses have been kept busily at work. Novels of the theater, radio and movies, when well done, are always popular, and there are several of these to choose from and more coming. Of "-whodunits" there is a ceaseless stream. For literary gourmand or gourmet an attractive feast is spread. One sighs for the good old days when great projects could be accomplished without a billion dollars of government money. Maybe Nehru of India came over here to check up on that quart of milk Henry Wallace was going to put on everybody's doorstep. Taxpayers dug up $23,000,000 last year to support the price of peanuts and, research discloses, averted the danger that a 10-cent bag might again contain more than 12. Household Scrapbook Kid Gloves The leather of new kid gloves will be more pliable if they are warmed before putting them on for the first time. A little talcum powder sprinkled on the inside ol the gloves wlil also make them easier to put on and take off. Rugs When a rug persists in curling at an edge where traffic is heavy try turning the rug over, dampening with some water, and pressing with a hot iron. Baked Apples The apples will not wrinkle while baking in the oven, if the skin is slit in three or four places with a knife before using. Do You Remember? One Year Ago The Venerable Francis J.

Constitutional lawyers, however, do not believe the courts would allow such a grant—as against public policy ..Certainly it would not be tax-exempt, which his 4 12 million trust fund enjoys ...While decent Americans are paying- the highest taxes in U. S. history, this miserable old hater's millions are not taxed!. ..Some men, who have the means of doinf< much good on this earth, prefer to be remembered tay tiie rneanncH.s of their souls....And thla Armstrong (the Ail-American Heel) hopes to have his hate live after him Imagine the good that fifty million dollars could do for research in polio, heart, cancer and the many other unknown enemies that plague mankind. The reatest service this unspeakable person could perform is to create a foundation for education of himself... Or build a new modern, mental institution and live in it until he drops dead.

Is it proper for a prospective bridegroom to offer to pay for part of his bride-to-be's trousseau? A. No; this would indicate a lack of tact on his part. He need not be impatient about this, as future clothing expense will be all his after the marriage. Q. Is it all right to partake of fried chicken with the fingers? A. This is all right at picnics and such affairs, but at the dinner table the knife and fork should be used. We never attacked Gen.
